B.E.S.T. Series #4 – Celtic Women Star Vocalist Chloe Agnew & Dermot Kiernan in a St. Patrick’s Celebration
March 3 @ 7:30 pm
Chloë Agnew is a singer, song writer and actress from Dublin, Ireland now living and working in LA. Chloë Agnew gained fame for her integral part as the youngest and one of the original members of the internationally acclaimed music group Celtic Woman since she was just 14. Chloë was born in Dublin, Ireland, to Irish entertainer Adéle “Twink” King and Irish oboist David Agnew. Coming from parents in the entertainment industry, Chloë was practically born on the stage and at a very early age enjoyed professionally acting, singing and dancing. She made her first television appearance on her mother’s TV program at just four weeks old, going on to make her first singing debut on National Television at the age of 6. She won the Grand Prix at the First International Children’s Song Competition in 1998 in Cairo, Egypt, representing Ireland. Despite being a familiar face on PBS television with Celtic Woman in more recent years, in 1999, Chloë previously appeared to perform as part of Handel’s Messiah on PBS television in 1999. The special featured great legends such as Gladys Knight, Chaka Khan, Roger Daltrey and Aiden Quinn. In 2000, at age 11, Chloë first worked with David Downes to record the song This Holy Christmas Night to raise money for the children affected by 9/11. That same year, she joined Christ Church Cathedral Girl’s Choir where she spent many wonderful years being musically trained. Chloë went on to record her first album at age 12 and her second at 14, both produced by David Downes. Shortly after the success of her second album Walking in the Air, Chloë was approached to become part of a new PBS show called Celtic Woman. Nearly 10 years later, Chloë held the dual title of being both one of the original members of Celtic Woman and the youngest performer of the group. At the age of 24, Chloë Agnew was already a musical veteran. After an illustrious career with the ensemble Celtic Woman, Chloë embarked on a solo career in 2013 and has since performed as a solo artist in the US, South Africa and Europe.
